I’ve never quite gotten the love for Lost in Space. Aside from the greatest robot ever the series always felt bland when I caught it on reruns. Then again, I thought the film adaptation was actually kind of interesting so take my opinion with a grain of salt. Netflix, that bastion of rebooted content, does see something special as they’ve won a bidding war for the rights and are now planning to launch a new series.
Dracula Untold writers Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless are penning the series while The Descent and Game of Thrones director Neil Marshall will do his best to warn Will Robinson of danger by direction the first episode. As for other information, there is none. They’ll most likely be updating the series, though a tongue-in-cheek throwback series would be kind of awesome and allow the show runners to play up on the camp of the original.
